Black Ripped Jeans

Outfit Details
Tank Free People, Jeans AgoldE, Booties Jeffrey Campbell 

These pictures were taken back in early October when we were strangely experiencing warm fall weather, which I Was definitely not complaining about. This called for being able to wear a tank top and be perfectly comfortable standing in the sun. I love when the weather nicely surprises you and makes outside fall activities much more enjoyable. Unfortunately, now we are dealing with freezing temperatures, I wouldn't mind going back to this weather a few months ago.

I have been loving these high waisted A Gold E ripped skinny jeans lately, and have been wearing them on repeat. The rips are more like slits thought the thigh of the leg rather than just large rips in just the knee area. They have been one of the most comfortable jeans I own. The fabric has a ton of stretch to it, which makes it feel like you aren't even wearing jeans. I wore this fitted Free People tank tucked in and paired it with an open chambray shirt that wasn't pictured here.

Morning Run

Last month I went on an early morning run with a friend along the beach. It was the perfect ways to start the morning. I just snapped a few photos after while watching the gloomy sun rise. 

I love that I grew up so close to the beach. Its one of my favorite places to be, and always brings back good childhood memories. Whenever I'm visiting home, I always make my way to the water. Heading to the beach this time of year is the best since you can bring your pups along for a walk/ run, or just to even watch the sun rise or set. Nothing is better!

Lachat Town Farm

Outfit Details:

Back in early October, I went to visit an old working farm in my hometown in Connecticut. The farm was recently dedicated to the town's nature conservancy for public and educational use, the emphasizes the town's agricultural roots. The property still contains the existing farm house and barn from 1770, as well as a newly added community garden area.

I grew up right near this farm with all the rolling hills and acres upon acres of meadow fields. One of my favorite childhood memories was when Mr. Lachat (the owner), would let all the kids in the neighborhood go sledding on all his rolling hills. Always so much fun sledding down, but the walk back up was definitely a struggle in the snow lol.

Although it was early fall, there were still some flowers and crops growing in the community garden. I was pretty excited when I came across a few sunflowers that were still going strong. They are definitely one of my favorite flowers!

I wore this sheer lace Free People dress that has a cut out on the back and bell sleeves. I love all the detailing on this dress that makes it feel extra special. I recently purchased these Jeffrey Campbell booties and have been finding ways to wear them with almost every outfit. I have trouble finding booties that fit perfectly around my ankles. When I came across these boots that have wire and are adjustable around the ankle, I couldn't have been more exited. The taupe color is an ideal neutral shade as it can be worn with almost anything.

Unfortunately my dress was purchased a few years ago and I'm unable to find the exact one. Thankfully Free People has an endless amount of white lace dresses year after year, which made finding similar styles a breeze.

Tan Suede Moto Jackets For Fall

Tan Suede Moto Jackets

Recently I've been having an obsession over suede motorcycle jackets for the fall, specifically tan colored ones. This fall staple is one that will never go out of style as each year it keeps getting reinvented. I am really into jackets that have edgy details to them with diagonal zippers, bold hardware, and belted waists. 

There are endless ways to wear this style. Wear it over dresses to balance the edginess with a more feminie piece, or even dress it down with some simple jeans and a tee. This is one item I would recommend investing in. Rather than splurging on something trendy, this is a piece you will wear season after season.  

I just purchased the first one on the top row, which is by BLANKNYC. After only having it for a short period of time, it has already become my favorite/most worn jacket. It's a great price for a 100% real suede jacket and has the perfect snug fit. I purchased the tan color but you can choose from 7 different colors!

Hiking and Fishtail Braids

Outfit Details:

Hiking has overtime become one of my favorite activities. It's especially my favorite during the fall. Nothing beats an afternoon of walking through the woods with all the colorful trees. Plus add in the extra exercise your getting and your golden!

These pictures were taken back in September when the leaves had just started changing colors. However, I'm sure now the leaves would have been much more beautiful. The weather was this perfect combination of warm sunshine, but chilly enough to get away with wearing a light sweater. This is one of my favorite Free People sweaters with its uneven hemline, and open back knot detail. I find it to be super feminine and fun to wear with different types of bra's underneath. It's fun to layer with bralettes that have lacy, multiple straps, and cut out details. The bralette I'm wearing is also by Free People and has a high neckline in the front and cut out pattern on the front and the back. 

I put my hair into double fishtail braids around the crown of my head, and combined them into one long fishtail braid down my back. I then decided to add another smaller fishtail braid down one side of my hair for an extra braided detail. This helped keep my hair out of my face during my hike, but also provided as a cute hairstyle for the rest of the day.
